Six-time Ballon d’Or Award winner, Lionel Messi, has met with Kylian Mbappe and other players of Paris St-Germain which he joined days ago.
The Argentine was announced as the club’s new signing on Tuesday and was yesterday unveiled to the club’s supporters after his first press conference in Paris.
Speaking during the press conference, the former Barcelona captain expressed excitement at the chance of playing alongside Mbappe and Neymar.
“To play alongside Mbappe and Neymar in attack is crazy, I’m really excited to get started,” Messi said.
Sharing photos of their meeting as teammates, Mbappe whose Twitter avatar is a picture of late Argentine legend, Diego Maradona, wrote, “Welcome to Paris, Léo.”
Mbappe is currently linked with a move to Real Madrid.
However, PSG chairman, Nasser al-Khelaifi, said on Wednesday that the Frenchman has “no reason” to leave the club after Messi’s signing.
“Kylian is a Parisian, he’s very competitive. He said he wanted a competitive team,”
“Now there’s no one more competitive than us. He has no reason to do anything else,” other than stay, he added.
